i3/conf not configuring keymaps in ubuntu 14.04.

I remapped a couple of keys in my setup, specifically,

remove Mod1 = Alt_R
add Mod3 = Alt_R

in a file called .Xmodmap. When I run xmodmap .Xmodmap from the terminal, the keys get remapped just fine. But when I added exec xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap to .i3/config and exited the session and logged in again, the keys weren't remapped. I had to remap them manually? My question is, why did the line I added to the conf file not work?

I'm running xmodmap successfully under Ubuntu 14.04 with the following in my i3 configuration file:

exec --no-startup-id xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
